How to improve mem­o­ry and atten­tion? Top 5 foods for your brain.

To improve mem­o­ry and brain func­tion, main­tain effi­cien­cy and a clear head, recharge with use­ful ele­ments.

Use­ful prop­er­ties of broc­coli

Do you want the brain’s abil­i­ty to process infor­ma­tion not to decrease over the years, the mind to remain clear, and the mem­o­ry sol­id? Eat veg­eta­bles and fruits more often! Broc­coli is espe­cial­ly good for the brain. It con­tains a lot of vit­a­min K and boron, the lack of which leads to a decrease in brain activ­i­ty. Apples are very use­ful. The sub­stances con­tained in them pro­tect brain cells from oxida­tive stress — it leads to mem­o­ry loss and a decrease in intel­li­gence.

They con­tain polyphe­nols (pow­er­ful plant antiox­i­dants) and min­er­als that improve blood cir­cu­la­tion in areas of the brain respon­si­ble for reac­tion speed and mem­o­ry. In addi­tion, cocoa beans pro­tect the brain from oxida­tive process­es lead­ing to Alzheimer’s dis­ease. To pre­vent this dis­ease, doc­tors advise drink­ing a cup of cocoa every day.

Use­ful prop­er­ties of fish

If the body does not receive enough polyun­sat­u­rat­ed omega‑3 fat­ty acids, then brain cells do not work well. Thanks to these acids, blood cir­cu­lates bet­ter, which means more nutri­ents enter the cells. The best source of omega-3s are fat­ty fish such as salmon, sar­dine, tuna, and trout. Fish also con­tains a lot of vit­a­mins A, D, E, as well as iron, phos­pho­rus, cal­ci­um, mag­ne­sium, zinc and sele­ni­um, which are nec­es­sary to main­tain brain activ­i­ty.

The ben­e­fits of nuts

For the ener­gy sup­ply of brain cells, vit­a­min E is need­ed, which is rich in nuts. Vit­a­min E also pro­tects cell mem­branes from dam­age and acti­vates thought process­es. And there is also a lot of vit­a­min C in nuts — a pow­er­ful antiox­i­dant that is used for the pro­duc­tion of nerve cells and neu­ro­trans­mit­ters, as well as vit­a­min PP, carotene, tan­nins, iron, cobalt and zinc. But remem­ber that nuts are very high in calo­ries, so you should not get car­ried away with them.

They con­tain a large amount of B vit­a­mins, which are respon­si­ble for main­tain­ing mem­o­ry, affect the state of the cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem, pro­tect the brain from over­load and stress, and also pre­vent pre­ma­ture aging of brain cells.

Edi­tor’s advice. Keep in mind that for the full func­tion­ing of the brain, not one or two sub­stances are need­ed, but a wide “spec­trum”. There­fore, try to diver­si­fy your diet and do not lean on the same foods.

Turn on your brain!
Use your brain to the fullest!
